A retired educator-turned-realtor, Susie Zammar Gale has always had a heart for education, helping others and Lee's Summit.
After a career that saw many years in the classroom, Susie began her real estate adventure in 2012. The housing market was starting to come out of the sharp decline of 2008 as she was about to take on her next challenge.
From the beginning, Susie says she has worked with great team members, including Leslie Silveira, whom she is partnered with in a new real estate force - Team LS. Austin Zammar, Susie's son, has recently joined the team as an expert in resale and social content marketing. Susie and Leslie are Gale Team members for Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate around the Kansas City area and market new homes in Winterset Valley along with Kurt Lutz.
Susie is involved in nearly every corner of Lee's Summit. As a board member of Lee's Summit Educational Foundation, she helps with the annual Taste of Lee's Summit event. In addition, she is the founder of the annual Mantles & Martini's event, a fundraiser for Kyle's Gift each December. Near to her heart, Susie is the president of Kyle's Gift, a foundation named for her late-son that offers grants and gifts to special needs children and adults. Kyle passed away in 2006 at age 22. A yearly scholarship at Lee's Summit High School, Kyle's alma mater, is given each year in his name. In 2018, she received the Community Service Award from the Kansas City Regional Area Realtors association.
Susie has volunteered and given her time to numerous organizations, including PTA, ReDiscover, Habitat for Humanity and Harvesters over the years.
Susie has been recognized as an agent in the Top 3% of sales by volume in Lee's Summit. Her team was awarded as the #2 New Home Community in sales for Winterset Valley by Greater Kansas City Homes & Gardens.
"I love to work hard to help families create a home," Susie said. "I want people to be deliriously happy."
Susie's expertise is focused in on new home and resale and she is a New Home Specialist. Susie has been in the Emerald Elite class for BH&G for two years (2015-2016).
And speaking of expertise ... if you need an expert on home staging, Susie has you covered. She takes great pride in her knowledge and staging prowess - which is a nice balance to her Team LS colleague Leslie and her knowledge of home resale pricing.
Prior to her successful leap into real estate, Susie spent many years inside the classrooms in Lee's Summit, starting at Hazel Grove in 1980 and later teaching at Summit Lakes Middle School. In 2002 she was the Lee's Summit Teacher of the Year and a finalist for Missouri Teacher of the Year. Susie has instructed thousands of students over the years in Language Arts and in the gifted program - a program she helped create.
Susie is married to David Gale. Dave & Susie's family includes 5 sons, Tucker, Kyle, Hunter, Cutter, and Austin and two granddaughters - Lizzie and Cate - who light up their lives.
